So a couple weeks ago I was on my way home, about to turn into my driveway when i heard a kind of squeek and a rattling and my 2000 impreza outback sport died. I inspected the timing belt and pulleys which all seemed fine. Next thing I pulled my starter and had it checked. it was completely dead. I put in a new starter and it still wouldn't start so I checked the teeth on my flywheel. It is missing a bunch of them and some are pretty badly warn.
I was told that if it was just the fly wheel and starter it shouldn't have died, and that also I should be able to push start it. Is this true? Does it mean something worse may have happened as well?
I am planning on doing the work myself when i can get enough money to buy the parts. I was thinking I should replace the clutch and rear main seal while I am in there. Is there anything else I should replace or check?
Thanks for looking and any help provided!
